October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
 
What is Domestic Violence? It's a pattern of controlling behaviors - Violence or threats of violence - that one person uses to establish power over an intimate partner in order to control that partner's actions and activities. Domestic violence is not a disagreement, a marital spat, or an anger management problem. Domestic violence is abusive, disrespectful, and harmful behaviors that one intimate partner chooses to perpetrate against the other partner.
